Presenting skills are becoming more and more key even for us lawyers. Not being a natural I set out to find some online help and came across Amy Cuddy's TED talk which has garnered over 42m views. Yep that's a lot!
Thought I would share it - some really good stuff in here.
Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy argues that "power posing" — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don't feel confident — can boost feelings of confidence, and might have an impact on our chances for success. NOTE: Some of the findings presented in this talk have been referenced in an ongoing debate among social scientists about robustness and reproducibility.
